Katherine H. Lee is an assistant professor of American Multicultural Studies at SSU. Her research focuses on the politics of academic writing in higher education and how these politics impact BIPOC students. Her current research project recovers the overlooked history of writing instruction and writing pedagogy in Ethnic Studies and Asian American Studies programs, looking specifically at how these programs have reconceptualized the work of academic writing. Prior to joining SSU, Katherine was a visiting assistant professor in the School of Education at Mills College where she taught doctoral research classes. She previously taught academic writing at many institutions, including UC Berkeley, UC Merced, Holy Names University, and Diablo Valley College, and spent several years working as a writing tutoring program administrator in higher education. Katherine is a contributor to the anthology Contemporary Asian American Activism: Building Movements for Liberation.
